Psycho tells Declan to become an Irons icon

ClaretandHugh says: Well that needed saying and it couldn’t have been said by a more appropriate person. Psycho was a heroic figure to most of us who remember him in his England glory days and the game hasn’t changed so much that his words can be described as meaningless. In the end, it all comes down to what you want from your footballing life; money or legendary status. Let’s pray Dec – who has shown absolutely no signs of wanting out of our great club – is after the second as a Hammer. We have been fortunate to see the rise of this young man from the academy to the global status he now enjoys in the game and that he should be encouraged by one of the game’s legends to follow in his footsteps is exactly the right sort of stuff to wake up to on a Saturday. Listen to Psycho Dec, he knows the score.

  1. If I was Dec I wouldn’t be wanting to go to Chelsea anyway, the club that nearly ending his career by saying he wasn’t good enough and discarding him at the age of 14. It was West Ham and the academy of football that showed faith in him and showed him the way. I’m sure Dec must appreciate that. Like Bobby Moore he’ll be the captain of West Ham and England if he stays with us. An icon. A legend to the same fans that have backed him since day one.

  2. So good. Absolutely listen to Stuart. And Kevin. And David. These are the men to tell you how to improve and enjoy your football. And follow Michail as an example of on-field attitude. Forget the rubbish from England coaching – head in hands, a shake of the head and showing your spirit by getting booked for nothing is not the way to go. Get on with it and kepp awake. Always know where you are and what you’re doing on the pitch.

    Life is great.

  3. Declan is a special and very rare breed of player. He’s a mature well-rounded young man grounded by his family and family values which shows in the honest way that he goes about his work on the pitch.
    It is fair and obvious to say that Declan IS the player that he has become because of rejection by Chelsea which then fired his desire and development at the perfect place for his abilities….West Ham.
    He probably knows this fact too and I’m sure that Stuart Pearce, Nolan and people close to him would’ve made him aware of that fact.
    It’s one thing joining a successful established side and another joining a vanity project, meaning that it can turn into shifting sands when the manager who signed you is dismissed and another manager takes his place. Stability doesn’t exist at a club like Chelski.
    Wanting to play with your mates isn’t always the best career move either. Who knows, Frank is probably having fun attempting to take the beating heart away from West Ham.
